Press release

Hadi Fallahpisheh – Good

Hadi Fallahpisheh performs alone in the darkroom. The lack of light impairs his vision and, consequently, movements become absurd and cumbersome. To make his work he uses different tools and methods: balls and flashlights, ceramic and photographic techniques.

The performance has elements of slapstick comedy. Isolated in a pitch-dark room, the artist throws a ball—again and again—at a sheet of metallic Kodak paper. Sometimes missing its target altogether, when the ball does hit the paper, a bulb lights up. The flash causes a photogram and by exposing different objects, creates faint outlines and grids. In the following step, he uses a flashlight to make line drawings on the light-sensitive paper.
